Sometimes the oldest of figures can be the most interesting to work with. When we first started painting minis, there was not a huge selection of figures for us to work with. We didn't really know anything about the various companies.
Years and years ago, we ran across some old Ral Partha figures in a bin at a convention, with the thought of using them for Blood Bowl teams, etc.
This figure must be well over 20 years old, possibly 25 at this point. But, some modern treatment and basing can make it seem as if it still belongs in today's environment.
